Upper Bucks COVID-19 Response Fund

Support the Upper Bucks COVID-19 Response Fund to Help Nonprofits Meet Community Needs--and We’ll Match It

We have established the Upper Bucks COVID-19 Response Fund for immediate needs in the wake of this crisis. We recognize the power of partnership in our community and in times of crisis.  LVCF established the Upper Bucks COVID-19 Response Fund to unite with individuals, business, and other organizations who have an interest in giving back to their local community during this time of crisis.  The Fund will deploy resources to nonprofits providing assistance (primarily, safety net services) to Upper Bucks County residents. 

If you are a non-profit organization serving the residents of the Upper Bucks area in the Palisades and/or Quakertown school districts, please apply. Click Here

Through the Edwin J. & Gertrude K. Neusch Fund, LVCF will match 100% of all donations to this fund, up to a total of $10,000.  100% of all contributions to the Fund will go directly to support the Fund’s mission.
